What's Happening

"Educating our communities and elected officials about the needs of survivors in our local cities and towns requires year round focus. JDI is our pathway to informing and influencing the state and national agenda to end sexual and domestic violence." ~ Karen Cavanaugh, Executive Director of Womanshelter/Companeras. PICTURE: Staff from The Center for Hope & Healing with Attorney General Maura Healey at JDI Advocacy Day.

Countdown for 9th Annual White Ribbon Day on March 3, 2016


What do Governor Charlie Baker, Andre Tippett of the New England Patriots, Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, MassHousing Community Affairs Director Thaddeus Miles, Newburyport High School student, slam poet Charlie Lake, DraMatik Hip-Hop performer Andres Gonzalez, and U.S. Coast Guard Captain Brett Millican all have in common?

These are the newest White Ribbon Day Ambassadors in Massachusetts and each will be speaking (and in two cases performing!) at the State House on Thursday, March 3 at 1 PM at the 9th Annual Massachusetts White Ribbon Day Proclamation Event.  Details here:  https://whiteribbonday.splashthat.com/

Daily stories of sexual violence and domestic abuse continue to fill the airwaves in cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth and across the globe.  We can and must do better. These men have taken a pledge to be part of the solution in addressing violence against women and all gender-based violence by reimagining manhood and by acknowledging the important role  men play in perpetuating it, even if they are not the ones committing it. This solution requires a wholesale change in how we think about masculinity, aggression, power, and status.

We invite you to cover this campaign and tell the stories of these men who are making a personal and public commitment to help end sexual and domestic violence and all forms of gender-based violence.

Speakers will be available for interviews before and after the event. 

To schedule interviews or for more information, please contact Toni K. Troop, Director of Communications and Development at Jane Doe Inc. at 617-557-1807 (direct line), 617-212-7571 (mobile) or ttroop@janedoe.org.
